Jonit: have the beat tell the story
October 20, 2011 1:11 PM   Subscribe

Here's a little musical journey. Let's start with Sherlock's Daughter, a dream-pop group of Brooklyn-based Aussies. From this, extract the keyboardist and electronics wizard Jonti Danilewitz, creating: D'Animals, then simplified as Danimals. It started as a solo outing, but turned into a group, who produced an odd single (which spun off an animated music video under the name Djanimals). The group also won the chance to work with Mark Ronson and a bunch of well-known musicians, producing a single with a video. Spin out a bit further, and Jonti is on his own (again), releasing a mixtape "album" from his private collection, and most recently signing with Stones Throw Records, where he has finally released his solo debut album (streaming online). Bonus tangents inside.

Tangents:
* Recently, Jonti produced a track for Hodgy Beats of OFWGKTA.
* Jonti's new album includes a track with SF Bay Area MC Otayo Dubb, who released a free mixtape on Bandcamp last year.
* And for more related streaming music: in the Tiny Mix Tapes review of Jonti's album, and they mention the group Plone. If you'd like more of the album, you can listen to an album and then some on YouTube

I saw Sherlock's Daughter live in NYC a while back, totally unexpectedly. They were fantastic, actually better than the band we went to see.

So far I'm digging the podcast a bit more than like the Ronson video. I like the less produced sound.

Oh, and then the second sound hit. Yeah, it's really good.

Statistically, I've seen Sherlock's Daughter at least once.

Omiewise - indeed, for all the interesting musicians involved, it doesn't feel too alive. His debut album, on the other hand, is a lot of fun.

Brooklyn-based Aussies

Given that we have an Aussie-based Brooklyn, which lot has the evil goatees? What happens if they touch?

Don't even speak to all those sequencer and beats boys. When they kiss they spit white noise.
